Following the success of the coffee table/pouf version, the Japanese designer Ryosuke Fukusada has re-utilised the iconic shape of a muffin – inspired by the simple geometric shape of the famous American cake mould - in the “Muffin lamp” floor lamp. The lampshade features a beguiling drapery effect that generates a bemusing game of shadows, giving the light more depth. Muffin lamp is available in matt white.
A coffee table or a seat?
American, like the famous muffins it draws its inspiration from, Japanese, like Ryosuke Fukusada who designed it, or Italian, like Bonaldo who produces it? It is difficult to tell, because in both its concept and multi-functionality, Muffin embodies aspects which are now common to all of modern society. A large number of objects are produced and consumed quickly in modern-day society. These include a lot of products tied to packaging or padding which cannot be seen. Nonetheless these products involve a more intricate design than people would think. Designing a piece of furniture using characteristic elements of such products can recreate the familiarity and functionality of everyday life objects. (Ryosuke Fukusada)
Muffin has a batch-dyed polyethylene frame available in white, anthracite, red, dove-grey and green.
